Tools & technologies - quick introduction

HTML-5 & CSS-3

Semantic HTML-5 and CSS-3 are a standard technology for accomplishing the goal of designing a front-end static web content. HTML-5 web revolutionized SEO and web content as we see it today. Responsive web development tools, like Twitter Bootstrap or Foundation, took HTML structure to another level and today that responsive-mobile aspect of web design can have a pivotal role in application's UX, performance an SEO.


PHP

PHP is an open source server side programming language developed for creating dynamic web applications. It can be easily embedded into HTML. PHP is most used with MySQL on Linux Apache distributions and has a wide set of functions for communicating with MySQL databases. PHP is widely used for building all sorts of web applications. A full explanation of all functions and a complete user manual can be found at PHP.net. PHP is still the most widespread server side technology, used to this day for creating dynamic websites. Most of web E-commerce platforms or CMS applications like Wordpress, Prestashop or a Magento, use PHP as their main scripting language.

PHP was designed for the web
PHP was made for developing web applications. It doesn't behave like other languages that can do multipurpose stuff and use a wide set of API-s for different applications, like JAVA or PYTHON. Php is good for web applications only.

PHP Frameworks
Laravel, Codeigniter, Symfony... ☝ there are a ton of frameworks for PHP out there and these are getting better by the day.Many of us love frameworks because frameworks can help you to boost your revenue and turnover as a web developer, and setup a whole app structure in matter of hours. My personal favorite is Laravel.

PHP versions
If you upgraded your web App to PHP 7.X, congratulate yourself.

Google friendly
PHP is well documented so you can search any function in google and you will find the function along with the examples. If you can't figure it out just google it.


jQuery

jQuery is a lightweight JavaScript library that makes things like DOM manipulation, event handling, animations, selectors, and AJAX very simple and easy to use. Maybe the best thing about it is that it works across a multitude of browsers. One of the biggest benefits of jQuery is that it handles most of the cross-browser issues. Anyone who has written serious JavaScript in the past can attest for a fact that cross-browser inconsistencies can drive you crazy.

jQuery is simple
jQuery is intuitive and easy to learn. This library is built on shorter, simpler Javascript code. With simple syntax and open coding standards, developers can shorten the time it takes to deploy an application. In addition, developers don't have to be coding Javascript experts or frontend ninjas to create great styles for your site. Any developer who has spent hours coding and testing CSS files will surely appreciate the simple implementation that jQuery brings to the table. There's also a set of robust jQuery UI components that developers can plug into their websites which makes elements with animations like dropdowns or accordions easy to utilize.

jQuery elements can display even with JavaScript disabled
Yes, that is possible.

jQuery load time is fast
Google and other search engines list using page load time as one of the many factors affecting SEO ⚡. For this, and many other reasons, every developer should strive to make code as light and concise as possible. The best way to do this is to reduce the size of your code. If your site is made with HTML and CSS, you can easily make adjustments in your code that will reduce the app volume. Like CSS, jQuery files are generally stored separately from the web page itself. This let's developers make modifications across the entire site through one central repository instead of searching through the folder structures.


jQuery mobile

jQuery Mobile framework utilizes the "write less, do more" rule. Instead of writing a unique application for each mobile device or OS, jQuery mobile allows you to develop a single application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms.

Touch-Optimized Web Framework
jQuery Mobile is built upon the existing jQuery core, meaning that if you understand the jQuery syntax, then you will have no problems getting JM to work. The framework is compatible with all major mobile and desktop applications including iOS, Android, Blackberry, Palm WebOS, Nokia/Symbian, Windows Mobile, Opera Mobile/Mini, Firefox Mobile and all modern desktop browsers.


AJAX

When you hit submit in your contact form, AJAX is the tool that will make a request to the server, interpret the results, and update the current screen.

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML
That way the user would never know that anything was ever transmitted to the server. XML (actually JSON is replacing XML ☕) is used as the format for receiving server data, although any format, including plain text, can be used. AJAX is a browser technology independent of web server-side software. A user can continue to use the application while the client program requests information from the server in the background.


WordPress

WordPress CMS
WordPress project started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with few users. WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on top of PHP and MySQL, licensed under the GPLv2 (or later) license. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted CMS web tool in the world, used by millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

Multiple options and plugins
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination ⚡. (And tech chops.)


Shopify

Shopify is probably the most popular commercial e-commerce platform today.

Why use Shopify you say?
It's easy to use. Shopify is completely cloud-based and hosted, which means you don’t have to worry about upgrading or maintaining software or web servers. This gives you the flexibility to access and run your business from anywhere with an internet connection.

It's easy to make your Shopify store multilingual
You can translate Shopify to almost any language in the world. Shopify is a language-neutral CMS thanks to UTF-8. Inside the admin panel folder you will find language folders that store translations. Translation files are just PHP files with text variable values.

Shopify is SEO friendly
Google likes Shopify. There's a Google Analytics dashboard extension inside the admin panel and more to help you boost your site’s visibility to shoppers. While you may want to work with a SEO specialist for off-page SEO, you should have no trouble with on-page SEO when you use Shopify.


Angular & TypeScript

Angular is JavaScript on steroids. It presents web developers with a whole new eco-system for building front-end web applications. In Angular you will not get lost in a sea of classes and functions that can become almost non-maintainable or non-testable, because Angular uses modular components which can be easy to maintain even with extra-big applications. Angular uses TypeScript, which is static superset of JavaScript.
